CSI...Critical Spiritual Investigator

"If you were accused of being a Christian, would there be enough evidence to convict?"

4 Kinds of Evidence Every Christian Should be Leaving Behind

1. Physical evidence.
If someone followed you around for a week, what would they find?  Be looking in your refrigerator, your choices of tv, movies, music, your Sunday activities, would they be different from the ones of the world? What would someone see in you that identifies you as a Christian?

2. Behavior evidence.
Christians should have the mind of Christ, "WWJD"  "What Would Jesus Do".  Our behavior is controlled by those we choose to hang around. Our circumstances are around us, but our character is within us.  Actions should proclaim that faith is real.  Our behavior is controlled by our character.

3.  Testimonial evidence.
If our conversations were recorded, what they reveal?  Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks. Our testimony is not only what we say, but also what we do. 

4. Fingerprint evidence.
We don't stay on this earth forever, but we leave an imprint long after we are gon. May we leave God's fingerprints on others.  We all influence those we encounter. Example...
"In memory of John Geddie, D.D., born in Scotland, 1815, minister in Prince Edward Island seven years, Missionary sent from Nova Scotia to Aneiteum for twenty-four years. When he landed in 1848, there were no Christians here, and when he left in 1872 there were no heathen."
